xios has been saying that their kit is going to be coming out for longer than i have been into foci. with tom out of the game you will either have to get a supercharger or get a custom turbo install. if you choose a supercharger i would recommend the procharger since it has the ability to do more than 15psi.

I am the director of Xios Motorworks and for the record, the earliest date I mentioned for the release of the SVT turbo kit was sometime around the beginning of 2006. One member of this forum was going to modify our ZX3 kit to work on the SVT and mentioned it, without authorization, back in 03/05. We even put a set of ZX3 parts and a modified GT-28R into production for him before receiving a deposit. The end result was that he fell off our radar and we were stuck with his kit and no payment.

Regardless, there were many unforseen obstacles that prevented the kit from being released at the beginning of 2006 and at such an early stage, I should have known better than to even offer a potential release date. Also, to clear up any misconceptions, our SVT turbo kit is a completely new kit with a conventional turbo manifold mounted ball bearing GT-28RS turbo with an optional equal legth tubular manifold, not a remoteley mounted modified version of our ZX3 kit. I believe that quality is more impotant than immediacy and as such have decided to spend more time on the development of this kit to assure that it is of the highest quality. The last thing I want is for customers to run into problems after install when they could have been addressed in development. The July release date mentioned earlier is our current estimate. I would post more information here but as I am not currently a supporting vendor of this forum, I'm not sure if that would be within the guidelines.

Just wanted to clear that up [:)]

Amlos- I know it's a pretty ambiguous question to ask you as your still developing the kit but do you have a ball park estimate for the WHP for your kit on the SVT?


Rikuum- What WHP are you running on your ZX3 with that kit?
